What Time is Good for You

What Time is Good for You

A Poem by That_Guy
"

As it passes us by lets take advantage of it

"
They say it heals all wounds and flies when you’re having fun,
Then why does it seem to drag on every time I go for a run.
I’m being told it’s running out,
So what’s this killing it all about?

Time is of the essence and cannot quit,
Now get up and  lets make the most of it.
A night out on the town,
Or just a day in the sun,
Don’t rush your choice nor pick just one.

Time only matters when I’m with you,
And never hurts more than I’m used to.
It need not be every waking moment,
But in my life you’re the main component.

Let this be the beginning and not the end,
For that wound time cannot mend.
And if it would help I’d make it stand still,
 So I’m sure Father Time would make do,
Now tell me, what time is good for you?

Now that's a reaction I like to see. Thank you ;)
This is awesome, I enjoy the way you explored time in all of its senses that we attribute to it, the use of the cliches contradicting each other in the beginning made for a great start. The wistful tone picked up towards the middle was introduced perfectly because of it, I could feel time slipping away as I read this. Great write, and a damned strong finish. Glad I stopped by to read this man, keep up the awesome writing.

Perfect words I would melt at hearing if coming from a sincere person. Poets are sincere so I take these words and hope one day I hear them. Nice write
